Ryan D Gillespie currently resides in Portland, OR. Professionally, he wrestles with spreadsheets at a shoe company. He has been a supply chain production planner, an admin, a project manager, a business analyst, and a legal assistant.

In his spare time he roots for the Timbers and Thorns. He also keeps busy making bacon and studying food preservation, reading many cookbooks, and watching way too much Netflix.

A recovering English major, he occasionally writes things at a rhino walks (but mainly just lists the books he reads).
